Overview:

Our Foundation

Since 2003, our annual Claremont Savings Bank Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $1,000,000 to local non-profit organizations for a wide range of charitable initiatives. These grants, which typically range from $500 to $5,000 each, help to ensure the success of local programs and projects that benefit all of us as members of the community.

Claremont Savings Bank Foundation Grant

Claremont Savings Bank Foundation makes grants one time each year to local non-profits that significantly enhance the quality of life and economic vitality in the communities that we serve. These grants are in addition to the bank’s regular contributions and the extraordinary volunteer efforts by our employees.

The sizes of our grants generally range from $500.00 to $5,000.00. Applicants may apply for amounts outside of these guidelines if documentation supports the nature of the request.
